MARQUETTE–Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care hosted their annual Pig Roast this afternoon, as a fundraiser to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

Dozens came out for the western themed pig roast dinner that included plenty of food options. Country music, 50/50 raffle prizes, and games like a ring toss set the mood, as people had a great time with residents and friends to raise support for a great cause. The fundraising goal for the evening was $2,000, with all of it going towards the City of Marquette’s Alzheimer’s Walk on September 23rd.

“What a great opportunity for us to partner with that group and truly to raise not only money, but raise awareness for this horrible disease that we need to eliminate,” said Brookridge Heights Assisted Living and Memory Care Executive Director, Neal Crothers.

This is the third year that Brookridge Heights has teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Association, and Crothers says the event keeps growing every year.
